Skilled Worker Visa UK

Let Us Guide You Through Your Complex Skilled Worker Visa Application

The Home Office has replaced Tier 2 (General work visa) route with the Skilled Worker route. The latter is implemented in an attempt to sponsor a wider workforce from outside the UK through UK employers. Being the main UK immigration route for non-UK resident workers, Skilled Worker Visa UK also encourages migrants to see the United Kingdom as a more appealing destination.

Yes UK Immigration is a leading specialist in immigration law with experience of helping thousands of visa applicants over a decade. With our tailored services, we strive to maximize your chances of success in UK visa applications.
